Don't let small stuff throw you


My daughter was going to a job interview and had taken off her nails due to a fungal infection. She obsessed over thinking her nails were weird.

In another recent case, we spoke with a physician who apologized first thing for wearing flip flops—I could not even see her feet, but she was all worried.

Little things can loom large.

Don’t let them. Remember to smile, to want the job and say so, to not interrupt the interviewer…that kind of thing.

Work gurus Dale Dauten and JT O’Donnell talked to a person worried about bad teeth.

They said don’t flash the ivories but do smile. Make sure your eyes smile, they said.

In that case, they also said to try to get some work done—that teeth could affect how the candidate would look to clients.

Not sure if fake nails were in the same category, but you see where I am going with this.
